You can count on Vin Diesel to deliver some solid no-bullshit action.
This is a movie about cops and drug dealers, justice and revenge. There's a lot of emotion involved since the beginning of the movie builds up the personality of a character who doesn't live very long, and the rest of the movie is all about vengeance. After that there's a lot of gunfire, blood and friendship. It's a brutal movie at times, but there's no filmed drug use or torture, even though you often catch a glimpse of people that have been tortured, killed, etc. It's a semi-light portrayal of a savage world.
The sceneries are both familiar and atmospheric, and realistic. The heroes aren't immortal, and they get shot up like everybody else sometimes. Like I said, it's solid action, and with a solid plot, and it never gets too graphical. It's filmed from some creative angles too. Overall it's a good movie! In fact, it's a great movie, a must-see for any fan of action-flicks.
